I don't remember where I first came across Small Pleasures. I do remember going back and finding it was sold out. So I had to order my copy online.
I found the book incredibly relaxing to read and at a time of personal tragedy, when it was easy to forget that the things that make us happiest are sometimes closest to hand.
Having a guide to the best of life's small pleasures, from Grandmothers, a hot bath, self-pity or sunbathing to remind me that small things can make me feel better.
